Weight issues, why is a size 8 consider fat!!! (Page 7)
irondominator: How tall exactly? I don't judge women on their size or even their weight. A size 10 looks a lot different on a 5' woman than it does on a 6' woman. The issue is how proportioned and toned the individual is and without knowing a persons height, it is impossible to determine. Nothing wrong with judging; everybody does this and there is nothing wrong with it as long as no one is casting stones at those whom they aren't attracted to. When I look at a woman, the last thing on my mind is what size she fits into. What attracts me is how tight her stomach is and the overall hardness of her body; some women are big boned and cannot get into a smaller size no matter how fit she is. Rolls of fat are what turns me off. You workout every day and I'm sure you eat healthy as well; so you are doing all the right things and should accept yourself the way you are. No one should be starving themselves just to impress others. Whether you are fat or not is highly opinionated. What's fat to one person is skinny to another.
Chissai: When a woman reaches a certain age....I’m talking over 50, she can’t be too skinny, it’s very aging.
Angry Beaver: besides which the yanks have fiddled the sizes so that a size 10 over there is size 12-14 everywhere else in the world! lol
Chissai: You two are talking about fitness (as in muscle mass) not weight.
The thread is about weight not fitness. And no it’s not the same thing. Many thin people are unfit. For that matter many so called “bigger” people are fit.
You don’t have to muscled to be fit, slim and healthy.

jamesnikki63: Yes I know... But the hard work of eating clean and working out to be healthy clearly has its advanatges..
faerieblood6: I think it is how you perceive fat. I am a voluptuous person and always have been. When I weighed a 100 pounds at 5'6" I barely squeezed into a six. I was anorexic and my bones were sticking out. I was not healthy and once I got past that and became comfortable in my own skin, I reached a healthy body weight. I eat right, get lplenty of exercise and I'm pretty strong for a lady ( I have tok be as I maintain my home). Anyway, I think the important thing is to be healthy and I've never had a doctor tell me to lose weight.
Angry Beaver: Americans need to know they are being conned, clothes manufacturers downsize the clothes to make them think they are a 12 when they are actually a 14 lol...there is no such size as 6 unless you are 4 yrs old
AretoNyx: Belly being bigger may mean malnutrition of a child or other health issues. Maybe pregnant as well , but is that fat or just having a baby? Generalization and logical fallacies really is not helpful in determining if a person ( make or female) is fat just because belly is bigger than chest size.
